PARTNERSHIPS FOR EQUITY: A CROSS-SECTOR APPROACH TO EMPOWERING BIPOC HOUSING DEVELOPERS

Monday, May 6
12:30 pm

Join The Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County and PBF for a transformative journey into local housing policy change that explores an innovative model that facilitates community and government collaboration and develops trusting, effective partnerships for creating and implementing equitable housing policies. This model ensures community leaders have a seat at the table and can better understand the inner workings of government, ensuring those usually excluded from government and policymaking are at the center of efforts for change.

This session is a deep dive into how this community-government partnership meaningfully addresses equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism within housing policy. Discover how these partnerships facilitate systemic change and structural reforms, as well as the “all-in” approach of cross-sector collaboration and solidarity, showcasing the model’s potential to bring various stakeholders together for meaningful change.

Explore the potential of this innovative model to revolutionize housing policy, ensuring equitable access to homes, health, and prosperity for all Californians. Together, we can work towards a California where everyone benefits from fair and inclusive housing policies.

PARTNERSHIPS FOR EQUITY: A CROSS-SECTOR APPROACH TO EMPOWERING BIPOC HOUSING DEVELOPERS

Thursday, May 9
12:30–1:30 pm

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) housing developers have historically been kept out of the real estate development ecosystem through exclusionary hiring practices, and discriminatory patterns that place barriers to capital access and economic mobility for people of color. Join SPUR and PBF to explore the pathways currently being carved out when experts from the public, private and nonprofit sectors illuminate the pioneering initiatives and steadfast support mechanisms championing the inclusion and success of BIPOC developers in shaping the housing landscape.

Our panelists will share their personal journeys, revealing the hurdles they’ve transcended and the successes they’ve celebrated in forging spaces for BIPOC voices. The enriching discourse will cover overcoming financial barriers, creating inclusive community alliances, and navigating the complexities of policy and investment that have long sidelined minority developers. Attendees will emerge with enriched perspectives on the power of policy reform, strategic investment, and community solidarity in dismantling systemic barriers and cultivating a more inclusive, equitable future in housing.
